Default St Thomas and Tortola

I have a question about the Islands. What is there to do besides snorkeling and scuba diving?...Are the beaches free and what are the best ones to see?

I've only been to St Thomas. We really enjoyed Magens Bay. A quick taxi ride and a few dollars to get into the 'park' and you're set. After most of the day there, we came back into town for some shopping and lunch at . . . what was the name? . .faces the water . . Frog something . . . Sorry! Mind went blank. It's an open air type lunch place. Then we went back to pick up my new ring.

On St. Thomas-- Magen's bay is beautiful or you could take the ferry to St. John's and go to Trunk bay... It has and underwater trail. Tortolla I believe we took a taxi to Cane Garden beach... (something like that) It was great too. But go early before the crowds arrive. Enjoy. We did do a snorkeling tour in st. thomas also. I think the name of the sailboat was the Island Girl or something like that. It was awesome.

Hi Lonnie,

All beaches in St Thomas except Megans Bay are free to use. Sapphire Beach is the most popluar, but also the most crowded depending on how many cruise ships happen to be in port that particular day. See the following website. Also, depending on when you'll be there, Sapphire Beach's restaurant is currently closed with no known date to reopen right now.


The only beach we visited in Tortola was the Baths and I can't tell you if there was a charge or not because we took the ship sponsored tour. If you're going to be in Tortola, try not to miss the Baths. It is a beautiful beach with lots of natural boulders that you can walk/climb thru where "baths' of beach water are throughout to relax in...
